Bibliography Latex Package Enumitem

This pack­age pro­vides user con­trol over the lay­out of the three ba­sic list en­vi­ron­ments: enu­mer­ate, item­ize and de­scrip­tion. It su­per­sedes both enu­mer­ate and md­wlist (pro­vid­ing well-struc­tured re­place­ments for all their fun­tion­al­ity), and in ad­di­tion pro­vides func­tions to com­pute the lay­out of la­bels, and to ‘clone’ the stan­dard en­vi­ron­ments, to cre­ate new en­vi­ron­ments with coun­ters of their own.

I'm experimenting with enumitem version 3.4 (released Aug 2011) a little but facing a problem in customizing the .

What I'm trying to reach is simple: Have list label in the form 1.1.3. for example. This is easy using the key. However, I don't want the references to take the same form as the label. This is because the dot (.) at the end is inconvenient to appear in the middle of a sentence.

So I defined the list as follows:

The problem with the above code is that the part evaluates using the current value of which of course has nothing to do with the list that is yet to come later in the source file :(

Here is the code in which the list is created:

There are similar examples in the user guide of enumitem (chapter 5, page 9), so I wonder how could I use the key to have the reference displayed as 1.1.3 (i.e. without a dot at the end)? (I feel something is not right in in that regard! At least the example seems not useful to me)
